Man Utd target Victor Osimhen spotted in Germany amid Bayern Munich transfer rumours

Manchester United target Victor Osimhen has been spotted in Germany amid rumours linking him with a summer move to Bayern Munich.

The 24-year-old striker has scored 23 goals in 30 Serie A games to help his side lift the Scudetto for the first time since 1990.

He is also in prime position to win the division's Golden Boot, as he is three goals ahead of Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez's tally with two games left to play.

His incredible form in Italy has prompted interest from some of Europe's fellow elite clubs, including United.

While Tottenham forward Harry Kane is Erik ten Hag's top target to improve the striker position, Osimhen has been linked with a move as a possible alternative if a deal cannot be reached with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

But a deal for Osimhen would not cheap either. According to Italian outlet Il Mattino, Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis would only sanction a sale of the Nigeria international if he received a fee of over £140 million.

United are also not the only top European club after the striker, with Bayern Munich also linked with a bid for the 24-year-old.

And Osimhen has been spotted in Germany.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Osimhen has been spotted at the Adlon Kempinski hotel, situated in the German capital of Berlin.

It is claimed that the sighting of the forward, who was with his girlfriend and daughter, 'is likely to raise eyebrows' in Naples.

Bayern are keen on signing a striker this summer, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting their only natural centre forward at present.

But despite scoring 10 goals in 18 league appearances this term, the Cameroon international, 34, has suffered from numerous injury problems this season.

Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller and Sadio Mane have all been used in the role in recent weeks, but the Bavarians are keen to identify a long-term solution.

Speaking after their DFB-Pokal defeat to Freiburg last month, sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said: "The games show: To go into the new season with just Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Mathys Tel, Thomas Muller and Sadio Mane would be negligent.

"In all likelihood, there will be a new striker. Whether it's Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen or Randal Kolo Muani, the coming weeks will show."
